Escondida Resort Near Kerrville In The Heart Of Texas Hill Country


Located just 15 miles southwest of Kerrville, The Escondida Resort is tucked away in a private, yet easily accessible setting with stunning amenities, live-water valleys, and hilltop views as far as the eye can see in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. The property was appropriately named “Escondida,” the Spanish word for “secret” or “hidden,” due to the storied past held by the property and its near hidden location in the protected valley. The moment you cross the exquisite gated entrance, you have entered one of the most peaceful, park-like backdrops you can script up, with a driveway winding through the secluded valley following the live water creek leading to the resort lodging. The property is complemented with first-class amenities featuring a resort-style hacienda with 11 bedrooms, two additional guest homes, and a nicely appointed 1,700 sq. ft. building currently hosting the spa facility. Whether someone is looking for a special private family retreat in this highly desirable area of the Texas Hill Country, a hunting and recreational retreat for outfitters or corporations, to operate the property as a resort & spa or as an event venue, this property offers abundant highlights and amenities that demands the serious attention of any buyer.
